Dave was born into a long line of builders. So it was only natural that after college (liberal arts) and a short stint in the Air Force (Vietnam), he gravitated to building. When he dropped in to share some beers and a few(?) war stories with a flying buddy in Sun Valley, Idaho one day, he sensed an opportunity in housing, and the rest is history. Some 30 years, 60 or so log homes, post and beam beauties, and numerous-numerous remodels later, he decided to hang up his carpenter’s built and move on to other ventures and a new community–McCall.

Why McCall? The intimacy of a small village, the lake and the powder that can only be described as delicious. Why real estate? Easier on the body and extremely satisfying. Honestly, the pleasure of finding the right home or the right piece of land for a client so they can not only envision their dreams, but bring them to reality, is huge.
Does your experience as a builder prove valuable? Absolutely. In this climate, especially considering the rigors of winter, you learn early on to respect the snow/cold and to accommodate it. Roofs that don’t perform are problematic–every winter–so you better know how to remediate them.
Dave loves living in small towns, because even if you don’t know everyone, you simply feel as though you do. Whether it’s having built a home for someone or finding them the perfect home, having a totally satisfied client is his goal. Additionally, he says, you will invariably run into them in town…and it’s always fun to say hello and catch up. Or conversely, you never want to feel as though you have to duck down the produce isle because you see them coming…!!
